Ive worked for a professional landscape company over 10 years ago before moving on to another profession. I still have a passion for it and recently landscaped my new house that I had built over the winter. I went with 1 gallon shrubs to cut back on cost so it will take a while to grow in nicley. I have about $950 invested in the total project. I found this site looking for ideas and find it to be a great resource for the professional or average joe interested in lawn in garden projects. Feel free to comment whether there positive or negative.
